September

Wow .. the month got away from me.  I got a bit of “remodeling” done i.e.  moving stuff around early in the month.   Then we had a warm spell so I quit transplanting for awhile.  Cooler days are ahead so I imagine I will be back outside soon moving stuff around.

This area was quite overgrown so I moved a lot of stuff out and transplanted in some Heucheras from other areas. I like the new look.

The dahlias have bloomed all month.  I put them in a different part of the garden this year.  They did well and I can see them better from inside.

There’s quite a bit of color still (see how the peach dahlias just pop?)

Fall blooming crocuses add a lot of color

These gross looking caterpillars defoliated the gas plant.. turns out they are giant swallowtail butterfly larvae

The succulents are flowering now too.  I love the funky shapes of these grey Orostachys

The maple leaves are starting to turn.  I hope we don’t get frost yet though.  I’m not ready to throw in the towel yet.
